After a two-year hiatus, the Fashion Malawi Edition (FAME) returns this summer with a week-long of fashion exhibitions. It follows the Malawi Fashion Week which was only held in its year of inception, 2013, and has since gone into oblivion.

 

Their colleagues, the pioneers of fashion shows in Malawi, FAME, have resurrected after they had also gone into hibernation the same year. “Taking a reflective year out in 2014 gave FAME team the chance to re-energize and plot something different. We’re really excited to present it to Malawi,” says FAME director Zilanie Nyundo.

FAME is currently looking for up-and-coming designers to be “the next big label” from Malawi under the theme of “Trendsetters”.

“Malawi, like Africa as a whole is filled with creative talent, set to inspire and drive modern African into the future,” says FAME project manager, Samantha Nampuntha.

A unique showcase founded five years ago, FAME is a collaborative arts project that produces an exhibit profiling the original work of fashion designers, outlets and accessories artisans.

“We will this year celebrate our evolving Africa with designs that are created for the contemporary African,” Nampuntha states.

“The growth of the fashion scene is our objective and we have carefully looked at how Malawi can realize new direction in 2015 – capacity building, menswear, new designers and the student factor are key components,” Nampuntha further says.

In 2013, FAME partnered with the Africa Movie Academy Awards and held an exclusive fashion show celebrating the work of top local designers Lilly Alfonso (FAME winner 2010), Yavinde Nyasulu (FAME winner 2012) and Isaac Bukhu as well as designers Krouma Ibrahim and Ejiro Amos Tafiri, from Guinea and Nigeria, respectively.
